Burglars break into theatre through roof
9:00am Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
BURGLARS made off from Clacton’s Westcliff Theatre with two torches and a bottle of Ribena after they were scared off by an alarm.
The crooks smashed their way into the theatre, in Tower Road, through the roof on September 9 at 3.20am.
It is thought they caused a couple of hundreds of pounds of damage.
Norman Jacobs, chairman of West Cliff Tendring Trust, said: “All they stole was a bottles of drink.
“They broke in through the roof above the foyer, but it seems they ran away after the alarm went off.
“There was damage to the roof, but it has already been repaired.
“We don’t keep money on the premises, so there is not much that people could take.”
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Clacton police on 101.
